across the technology sector, we are increasing and grappling with a significant economic challenge. we are not able to fill all of the jobs that we are creating. the numbers help tell the story. at a time when unemployment nationally hovered just below 8% the unemployment rate in the computer and mathematical occupation is falling to just over 3%. in many states and many subcategories it has fallen below 2%. unfortunately this situation is likely to get worse rather than better. the bureau of labor statistics has estimated that this year the economy is going to create over 120,000 jobs, new jobs that will require a bachelor's degree in computer science. yet we estimate that all of the colleges and universities in the country put together will produce this year only 51,487 of these degrees. that is why this is of such great importance -- importance. you are considering important things, the green card shortage. it eliminates were goes very far to reduce the backlog. it eliminates the cap and creates a new green card category for advanced science technology in hearing and matt degrees, a
